Ew and owie! No, I haven't had that done. I wouldnt spend money on acupuncture for weightloss, either. If it isn't a simple, intuitive fix that is directly linked to my habits, don't do it. No magic pills or quick fixes here, they tend to have unforeseen side effects.

I thought this was an April Fool's post...

Really, the best and most lasting way to lose weight is the least sexy and exciting: restricting calories to create a deficit. And some exercise. Repeat for the rest of your life.

Slow and steady wins the race, without a raging infection in their ear canal...
It's about commitment, not motivation.

No - I thought this was a joke. There is always someone out there to prey on our insecurities I guess. Being a conscious consumer is the best defense against shyster antics like this.

If this really worked women with pierced ears would all be thin. I know there are specific sites for the stapling but really?!? I have a friend who has just about every space on her ears pierced and she still has a weight problem.

DixC - apparently with ear stapling, it's done INSIDE the ear (ouchie! and holy moly dangerous!) to affect something that connects to your appetite control blah blah blah, hooey, scam...

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly..."

I had it done a few years ago, and I dropped about forty pounds.I didn't crave soda anymore, and I was a heavy soda drinker. When I had the staples removed I gained all of it back, plus some. Of course, I had a bout with bacterial meningitis, and was not physically active for many months, which probably contributed to the weight gain. That, and I began drinking soda again. I guess this wasn't much help. Sorry!

if it really worked we would all have it done I imagine
